1940s Vintage Yardley AD with Tilt Hat

Tilt & Doll Hats The tilt and doll hats started to come about during the 1930s. But in actuality there were similar hats during the 19th century. This type of hat adds attitude, style, sophistication, sensuality and a bit of the naughty. However, it was during the 1940s War Time that these little toppers took off and were so dubbed Doll Hats. In this time certain fabrics were rationed for the war effort and so designers and milliners made due and created fashions with new hemlines and smaller hats. These little confections have made a comeback and in a big way. The Duchess of Camebridge really helped solidify the style back on the scene. It was also the burlesque movement and it’s ladies of the evening dawning these little numbers in their shows. Today many lolita’s love wearing the Toy Tilt Top Hats and Tilt Cocktail numbers too.

Chokers & Collars This season the most sought after neckwear for women are choker necklaces and collars. However, these are not your mother’s chokers or demure collars. These stunning modern pieces have a gothic retro flare. Some are a little rocker to vixen lola. These innovative pieces are coming from the street styles of the steampunk and goth followers. There influences are being elevated to high fashion fancies. Enjoy a lace collar choker, satin ribbon tie necklace, studded rocker collar or a fantasy beaded collar. All these themes add creative sexiness to a look. Chokers and collars encircle the neck in a very sensual way and bring to mind a bit of vampire naughtiness.

The Marvelous Mode Pick for Best Witch Movie with the Legendary Veronica Lake.


Halloween All Hallows Eve or Halloween comes every October 31st. It is a time for the dark side to come to life and walk the earth. But also a time to fight off the darkness. As little kids we dress up in costumes and go out trick or treating. As adults it’s a time to go to Halloween Balls and Parades with our best outlandish looks. A time to get creative and look different. Most people associate Halloween with Witches, Vampires and Warlocks. We at Marvelous Mode love this Holiday because it is a time to play dress up and act out characters rather than be ourselves. Why not this year create an All Hallows Ever Cocktail Party where people dress up in a goth inspired looks that are frighteningly fabulos. See these next two pages to get some spooky ideas for a fashionable Halloween Costume...... Happy Halloween!
